  1. if you read the book carefully, there are these words at the end: “Alice woke up.” it was her dream, and in a dream we really see everything 🙂 I don't think she is a sick girl, just a child with a good imagination and a developed imagination

  2. This is a very classic story of a normal person. In China, for example, it is told like this.

    One day Chuang Tzu dreamed that he was a butterfly-a happy butterfly, fluttering among the flowers to his heart's content and not knowing at all that she was Chuang Tzu. Suddenly, he woke up and saw that he was Chuang Tzu after all. And he didn't know whether he was Chuang Tzu, who had dreamed that he was a butterfly, or whether he was a butterfly who had dreamed that she was Chuang Tzu.

  3. Lewis Carroll was an adherent of LSD and everything described in his works is the fruit of the effects of psychoactive substances on his nervous system. So from his point of view, Alice and everything that happens to her is absolutely normal. But what readers see is already their perception.

  4. I take it your question is about the recent film adaptation? The original literary source has already been well answered, and the film is quite far removed from the original. Alice there seems to be hiding from the annoying reality, as in Narnia; of course, you can assume that this is some kind of allusion to mental illness (it is the Cheshire Cat quotes about insanity that are for some reason most strongly associated with Carroll's Wonderland, although this is incorrect), when a person goes off the rails, unable to withstand the weight of circumstances. But this is Burton, this is fantasy! In his films, everything is kind, serious and instructive – that is, as if in reality (like the same Narnia – after all, it was not a mass psychosis of all four, it was real). I don't recall anyone considering Peter Parker or Harry Potter gone. It's the same here. Fiction, fairy tale, magic, good enough to believe in.

  5. Alice was just normal, unlike everyone else ) Of course, you can say that this is the first sign of mental illness, but this is not exactly what Carroll meant. He took a smart, sensible girl, brought up in the best traditions of that time — and plunged her into a world of absurdity, where all the laws instilled and learned by her do not work. She tries hard to apply them, but they still don't work. Alice is a girl with perfect logic (although her head is a bit of a mess), but in Wonderland there is no logic. It was a fun experiment on the part of the mathematician and logician Carroll, and the readers fell in love with it so much, because everyone was on Alice's side — just as outraged by the absurdity of what was happening — and just as much they liked it in the end. A smart person always likes it when they break patterns beautifully, but we won't talk about stupid ones.
